An Answer To My Problem
I was interviewed by a medical assistant then a Physician's Assistant before I met Dr. Ricotta. All listened attentively to my symptoms. Dr. Ricotta recommended a diagnostic test which will be done in his office. I feel confident that they will be able to help me. I am pleased that I was not rushed and I was taken for my appointment on time! So happy that I was referred to this doctor. The staff was happy and seemed to know the patients well.

It's always a pleasant experience as the staff is friendly, cordial and most importantly, very professional. The wait time is usually out of my range of patience, but today's visit was much quicker than usual in this regard.

Doctor and staff are top notch. They are prompt, informative, and follow up is excellent. Written instructions and phone calls are provided before and after the procedure. Doctor Ricotta informs family after the procedure, staff follows up with phone call and follow up appointment. What more can you ask for?
